There are two questions that need to be answered here -- first is are you are competitive candidate at all these schools. Based on what you say, I would say that with a well crafted and compelling application that you would be. The second question is concerning your ability to obtain a scholarship to any of these programs. First of all you need to be aware that for most business schools there is very little scholarship money available -- the reason being is that they assume that you will be making enough money after graduation to repay any loans that you might have taken out for fund your schooling. Also, you need to be aware that people applying to all of these programs are world class so that your application would have to be the top of the top in order to be awarded a scholarship. Lastly, American schools are much more generous that European schools with financial aid -- simply put -- they are wealthier. Based on what you present here -- you would really have to give me some more compelling reasons why you should be awarded a fellowship than what is presented.

Good luck.
